Featuring a bibliography and scriptural references throughout, this is sure to become a favorite for young readers and for first book reports.
If you have read my reviews of Get to Know King David and Get to Know Apostle Paul then you are probably already aware that this is a series I think highly of. Get to Know Jesus doesn't disappoint and is just as good, if not better, than the others I have reviewed.
Sanders covers the life of Jesus in 10 chapters, but don't let that fool you. This book is chock full of great information for the young Bible scholar. I love that in the first chapter Sanders walks us through the history leading up to Jesus' birth, what the world was like that Jesus lived in, the history of His people, and their desire for the Messiah to arrive. She sets the stage perfectly for the birth of God's Son and helps young readers to understand the importance of it.
Like all of the Get to Know series, this book is full of paintings, pictures, maps and photographs to help the reader visualize the important places and events. The timeline also helps the reader to reconcile the events in Jesus life with the events of the world.
Another great addition to my child's library! I'm sure it will be for yours also!
